This shot was taken at Aston Rowant on Saturday. It was a beautiful day, and the butterflies turned up in abundance. Many thanks to Nigel Kiteley, who very generously helped me with everything from camera settings, shooting angles, spotting the butterflies and identifying them.

It was my absolute pleasure to be of assistance Alex. What you haven't mentioned is that you had to leave home at 2.30am to get to Aston Rowant early enough to find the roosting butterflies, a fact that leaves me full of admiration.

This is a beautiful image showing the "electric blue" sheen of this amazing butterfly, very well done indeed Smile.
